Engineers Without Borders - USA is a non-profit humanitarian organization established to partner with developing communities worldwide to improve their quality of life. This partnership involves the implementation of sustainable engineering projects, while involving and training internationally responsible engineers and engineering students. The activities of EWB-USA range from the construction of sustainable systems that developing communities can own and operate without external assistance, to empowering such communities by enhancing local, technical, managerial, and entrepreneurial skills. These projects are initiated by, and completed with, contributions from the host community working with project teams.

The Wild Foundation is a non-profit conservation organization that builds communities and leadership that respect and protect wilderness around the world. They work at all scales of government, from the grassroots of West Africa where they are saving one of just two remaining herds of desert elephants by building strong conservation leadership at the community level, to China, where they are sparking new dialogue and leadership in the Chinese establishment about the fundamental necessity of wilderness and wildlife protection both inside of China and around the world. In 2019 and 2020, WILD is launching and ambitious campaign targeting 40% of the world's population (located in Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa) in an effort to prevent the extinction of 4 million species in the next 30 years by setting aside 50% of all marine and terrestrial areas for the conservation of nature.

Doctors Without Borders (MSF) is an independent international medical humanitarian organization that delivers emergency aid to people affected by armed conflict, epidemics, natural or man-made disasters, or exclusion from health care in over 65 countries. Each year, MSF doctors, nurses, logisticians, water-and-sanitation experts, administrators, and other medical and non-medical professionals depart on more than 4,700 aid assignments. They work alongside more than 25,800 locally hired staff to provide medical care. As medical first responders, our teams of over 42,000 doctors, nurses, and logisticians are often the first on the scene—sometimes arriving in a matter of minutes to respond to the needs of people whose lives have been upended by emergency and crisis. In 1999, MSF was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in recognition of its pioneering humanitarian work around the world.
